The main yield components of grass are the number of leaves per unit area and dry matter content. Higher yields come from optimising leaf numbers, maintaining a green leaf canopy and achieving a high dry matter content. A balanced fertiliser program including all macro and micronutrients is essential to help manage all of these components.
